Yep, RG2E Peeps, it’s true…RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner used to ride a cow named Lulabelle! And here she is to tell you all about it…
I used to ride a cow named Lulabelle.
Now I know you’re asking yourself what that has to do with writing. It’s simple. It’s all about creativity. I wanted a pony and didn’t have one so I improvised and rode a cow and pretended she was a pony (yes this really happened). It’s the same today. I live a normal, average life but sometimes I want to be reckless and romanced so I live out those fantasies through my writing and reading. There is nothing better than the escape into another world, even if it’s for a short time, and enjoy things that would probably never happen in real life such as a gorgeous millionaire falling in love with me or being able to shape shift.
TV and movies are great but nothing compares to a book. With a book the author paints a picture of that alternate reality but you still get so much opportunity to make it your own, in your mind. How many times have you read a book that is then made into a movie and you are thoroughly disappointed at who was picked to portray your favorite characters because you had imagined something else completely? I know it’s happened to me many times.
I said in conversation the other day that movies are strip clubs where a book is a burlesque – it leaves something to the imagination and that is much sexier!
With that, I thought I’d leave you to comment and receive a copy of Handbags & Hooligans for the reader of your choice.
Presley went to Vegas to watch her friend Anna get married and the event turned into solving the mystery of her brother’s girlfriend’s disappearance. But Ashley wasn’t exactly the schoolteacher she appeared to be. Who was she and why was she kidnapped?
